Is this breaking news? No, not exactly. Unless you’ve been living under a rock , you’ve heard about the Alexander Mcqueen exhibit, Savage Beauty, at the Met. Well some of us at Journelle have just gotten around to making the long trek up Fifth Avenue to see what all the fuss has been about, but we can now say that said fuss is, indeed, warranted. The exhibit highlighted the designer’s darkly romantic aesthetic and the impeccable craftsmanship of his work, all giving the audience a glimpse into his complex sources of inspiration. And we couldn’t help but notice the similarities between his work and some of our favorite undergarments. You might not be able to actually wear McQueen but with some of the pieces below you can pretend pretty convincingly.
